In Remembrance of 9-11…

* * * * * 

.

.

You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news On September 11, 2001.

Neither will I.

.

 I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say,

.

“Good-bye.”

.

I held his fingers steady as he dialed.

.

I gave him the peace to say,

.

“Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK…I am ready to go.”

.

I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn’t coming home that night.

.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me for help.

.

“I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!”

.

I said. “Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now.”

.

I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls.

.

I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered.

.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken.

.

I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith had saved them.

.

I was in Texas, Kansas, and London. I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.

.

Did you sense Me?

.

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name -though not all knew Me.

.

Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor.

.

Some sought Me with their last breath. Some couldn’t hear Me calling to them through the smoke

 and flames;

.

“Come to Me… this way… take my hand.”

.

Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.

.

But, I was there.

.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You may not know why, but I do.

.

However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time would you have reached for Me?

.

September 11, 2001 was not the end of the journey for you.

Persons going to music festivals seldom think about the positive health effects that music imparts. As the research continues the body of evidence increasingly shows that music has many positive health benefits.  Music is one of the few activities that involve using the whole brain.  It is intrinsic to all cultures and can have surprising benefits not only for learning language, improving memory and focusing attention, but also for physical coordination and development.

 

.

 

Music can be distracting if it is too loud or too jarring, or if it competes for our attention with what we’re trying to do, but for the most part, exposure to many kinds of music has beneficial effects.

 

.

 

Music Heals

.

 

Listening to music can reduce chronic pain from a range of painful conditions, including osteoarthritis, disc problems and rheumatoid arthritis, by up to 21% and depression by up to 25%, according to a paper in the UK-based Journal of Advanced Nursing.  Music therapy is increasingly used in hospitals to reduce the need for medication during childbirth, to decrease post-operative pain and complement the use of anesthesia during surgery.  There are several theories about how music positively affects perceived pain:

 

.

Music Serves as a Distractor

.

 

Music may give the patient a sense of control.

 

.

 

Music causes the body to release endorphins to counteract pain.

 

.

 

Slow music relaxes a person by slowing their breathing and heartbeat.

Reducing Blood Pressure

No Need to Be Discouraged

==========================

.

As I was driving home from work one day, I stopped to watch a
local Little League baseball game that was being played in a
park near my home.
.


As I sat down behind the bench on the first-base line, I asked
one of the boys what the score was.
.


“We’re behind 14 to nothing,” he answered with a smile on his
face.
.


“Really,” I said. “I have to say you don’t look very
discouraged.”
.


“Discouraged?” the boy asked with a puzzled look.
.


“Why should we be discouraged?
We haven’t even been up to bat yet.”
.


I don’t know who wrote the above joke but when life has you
down, when it appears you are losing, when you think the odds Read More

A MountainWings Moment - You Make A Difference‏

You Make A Difference
======================

.

A teacher in New York decided to honor each of her seniors in
high school by telling them the difference they each made.

.

She called each student to the front of the class, one at a time.

.

First she told each of them how they had made a difference to
her and the class. Then she presented each of them with a blue
ribbon imprinted with gold letters, which read,

.

“Who I Am Makes a Difference.”

.

Afterwards the teacher decided to do a class project to see what
kind of impact recognition would have on a community. She gave
each of the students three more ribbons and instructed them to
go out and spread this acknowledgment ceremony.

.

Then they were to follow up on the results, see who honored whom
and report back to the class in about a week.

.

One of the boys in the class went to a junior executive in a
nearby company and honored him for helping him with his career
planning. He gave him a blue ribbon and put it on his shirt.

.

Then he gave him two extra ribbons and said, “We’re doing a
class project on recognition, and we’d like you to go out, find
somebody to honor, give them a blue ribbon, then give them the
extra blue ribbon so they can acknowledge a third person to keep
this acknowledgment ceremony going. Then please report back to
me and tell me what happened.”

.

Later that day the junior executive went in to see his boss who
had been noted, by the way, as being kind of a grouchy fellow.

.

He sat his boss down, and he told him that he deeply admired him
for being a creative genius. The boss seemed very surprised.
The junior executive asked him if he would accept the gift of
the blue ribbon and would he give him permission to put it on
him. His surprised boss said, “Well, sure.”

.

The junior executive took the blue ribbon and placed it right on
his boss’s jacket above his heart. As he gave him the last
extra ribbon, he said, “Would you do me a favor? Would you take
this extra ribbon and pass it on by honoring somebody else.
The young boy who first gave me the ribbons is doing a project
in school, and we want to keep this recognition ceremony going
and find out how it affects people.”

.

That night the boss came home to his 14-year-old son and
sat him down. He said, “The most incredible thing happened to
me today. I was in my office and one of the junior executives
came in and told me he admired me and gave me a blue ribbon for
being a creative genius.

.

Imagine. He thinks I’m a creative genius.

.

Then he put this blue ribbon that says “Who I Am Makes a
Difference” on my jacket above my heart. He gave me an extra
ribbon and asked me to find somebody else to honor. As I was
driving home tonight, I started thinking about whom I would
honor with this ribbon and I thought about you.

.

I want to honor you. My days are really hectic, and when I come
home I don’t pay a lot of attention to you. Sometimes I scream
at you for not getting good enough grades in school and for your
bedroom being a mess, but somehow tonight, I just wanted to sit
here and well, just let you know that you do make a difference
to me.

.

Besides your mother, you are the most important person in my
life. You’re a great kid and I love you!”

.

The startled boy started to sob and sob, and he couldn’t stop
crying. His whole body shook.
He looked up at his father and said through
his tears, “Dad, earlier tonight I sat in my room and wrote a
letter to you and Mom explaining why I had killed myself and
asking you to forgive me.

.

I was going to commit suicide tonight after you were asleep.
I just didn’t think that you cared at all. The letter is
upstairs.

.

I don’t think I need it after all.”

.

His father walked upstairs and found a heartfelt letter full of
